Someone at Marquette thought it was a good deal to add a mural of an FBI fugitive and cop killer, Assata Shakur, to the campuses Gender and Sexuality Resource Center.

After public outcry, Marquette removed the mural.

Marquette University removes mural of FBI fugitive who killed trooper

Marquette University quickly removed a mural on campus that had generated outcry over the weekend because of its subject: a woman on the FBI’s most wanted list who was convicted in a New Jersey state trooper’s 1973 murder, escaped prison and fled to Cuba.

The mural of Assata Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, has been on display at the Marquette Gender and Sexuality Resource Center at least since March.

The center posted photos of the mural on its Facebook page on March 24, saying, “Thank you to the Alpha Kappa Alpha’s for initiating the mural to be done at the GSRC. It looks absolutely beautiful. Check it out at AMU 425.”
